how many ATP molecules are produced per glucose molecule? 1 glucose = 2 pyruvates by starting with pyruvate, you skip glycolysis (so minus 2 ATP that would be proceed there for every 2 pyruvates)

I guess 414 ATP molecules. 2 pyruvate after krebs ets gives 36 atp. So 1 pyruvate gives 18atp. So 18*23

It actually turned out to be 287.5... someone on Yahoo! Answers explained it to me. :) But thanks!
